greatly russia. russian cars are on the streets of vietnam while vietnamese streams are a much loved delicacy on russian dinner tables last year alone the trade turnover between the two countries reached almost two billion dollars with both hoping to increase to ten billion. russian money big companies are flowing to vietnam bringing millions of dollars of investment which is a good sign of healthy relations. but the biggest venture estela had russia is to build vietnam's first atomic power plant it took several years for georgeson environmentalists to find the right place haint vietnam to build the country's first nuclear plant they chose the central province one child on haiti's locals call it the land of sand and sung. there is no rain here now it's raining but it's for the first time in the last few months and as a result few people live in here and that makes it an almost ideal place for future
project and the plans include eight power stations within the next two decades we think the first unit we launched by twenty twenty it will provide us with cheap and safe energy to meet up to fifteen percent of the rise on demand local people welcome the idea of the region which is among the poorest in the country becoming vietnam's energy powerhouse communities here have traditionally been dependent on fishing and dries growing but now the sense of brighter future. infrastructure and give us opportunities i think one day my children can work it was my idea for this they worked hard and got a good education to be smart it's an honor. to do hungry man admits his knowledge about the biggest country on earth starts and ends with paris and. but his sure that the joint enterprise apart from profit will help forge closely between the two nations it seems that the russian vietnamese friendship that goes
back to the vietnam war now works well for peace and prosperity for both but on long range over the red river north of annoying vietnam the country's longest for years it symbolized a long friendship between vietnam and its strongest ally the big communist brother u.s.s.r. its vietnamese name could be translated as rising dragon and it seems the drug on its tail flying high twenty years on after the collapse of the soviet union russia is among vietnam's closest partners or even ocean r.t. vietnam. era silence of that summit and we had members capital hanoi russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has met with the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton they praised the first. and russia nato and iraq operation in afghanistan which happened on thursday lavrov said it set an example for others but added it shouldn't stop there and agreement to share information on drug trafficking and terrorism has been made between moscow and washington and as
our teams are in english the reports russia has been trying to bring the scale of the drugs problem to u.s. attention for quite some time. in a puff of smoke. for drug producing labs in the mountains on the border between afghanistan and pakistan more than a ton of heroin and morphine destroyed in the process this is rushing nato working together closer than ever before in its first ever joint operation on a grand scale this courtney's number trees in the mountainous area and leaves pakistan we used about seventy special forces units three landing helicopters and six as. we discovered and destroyed drugs juicing labs and seized more than one hundred kilos of heroin it took russia nato and afghan anti-drug forces three months to organize the joint operation and only three hours to carried out the
estimated value of drugs destroyed it's go to a billion dollars and about two hundred million single doses of heroin it's a good start i think to fight the drug. eradicate the drug problem in afghanistan we should not look at it as an afghan problem it's a global problem russia's too close to get a sense of comfort and has been asking for help from international organizations in fighting drug trafficking across the border an influx of opium leads to an exponential increase in the number of drug users and the profit from the drug trade is said to go to sponsor international terrorists who threaten russia's southern regions. i think it's important to realize the growth of the drug trade has grown to forty four times since the beginning of the u.s. led operation in afghanistan and we must remember the. a u.n. mandate exists which is coalition forces to counteract drug trafficking. winter may be thoughts approaching but russian leaders relations seem to be only now heating
up officials of both sides said that joint efforts seem to be the true relaunch of relations in action and hope that this is the beginning of the end for outcome drug trafficking in the coast guard t mosco. and former u.s. drug policy spokesman robert wiener can't believe it's taken the u.s. so long to come around to the view of red occasion. unfortunate that it has taken this long to really come together with you there's been a reluctance in the united states to even go after the drug trade in afghanistan it's been a policy of the military to let it go and that's tragic and it's unbelievable to me that it took russia to tell the united states where the drug labs were when we have one hundred thousand troops we've spent eighty billion dollars on intelligence we have one hundred thousand additional contractors so we had to know were crawling all over every inch of that country but it took you to in fact to out the united states to force us and to embarrass us to cooperate with you to stop the drug trade
which is in the interest of the entire world including the united states. as former u.s. drug policy spokesman robert grenier in new york what to marty live from moscow coming up in just a few minutes zero tolerance russia's new drink driving ban is getting tougher as it aims to cut the country's shocking record of road deaths but some say it goes too far. and a new spy scandal has flared up between georgia and russia after reports of twenty people have been caught allegedly spying for moscow georgian officials have so far refused to confirm or deny any part of the story but have said they will make a statement soon artie's peter all of earth trying to shed more light on the story . well on friday the reuters news agency was reporting that twenty people had been arrested in georgia accused of spying for moscow the report cited a source saying that all twenty were georgian citizens however way yet to hear any
official response from the georgian sides over those arrests now we may not hear until perhaps november the fifth when the georgian foreign ministry has said that they will issue a news conference to talk about the situation that the georgians might not have said anything but russian political figures have spoken out on they say this strike scandal if you will saying that they believe that there's no dues no need for russia to have a spy network in georgia at this is just the georgian side tried to play russia off as the bad guy again. this looks like another of georgia's internal political battles in russia is used as the boogie man as usual russia doesn't need a spy network in georgia it would be waste of resources russian officials can get all the information in georgia without leaving their desks there's a massive georgian jospeh here in russia was giong toys to homeland's so there's absolutely no need for any old spying methods to gather intelligence it's all
basically nothing more than part of george's internal policies twenty thousand and six russian military personnel who were arrested in georgia accused of spying for russia and that resulted in the the temporary terminations of travel and services between the two nations and the relationships between the countries hit its lowest ebb in two thousand and eight following georgian aggression in south a set yet this forced russia to send troops into the region and resulted in the military conflict in august of that year and in march of twenty ten this year we saw two russian citizens and one georgian receiving lengthy prison sentences here in russia on espionage charges so quite a few incidents over the past few years involving tensions between these two countries. peter all over reporting there and comedian jon stewart has more clout of american president barack obama that's the view of voters on an online men's magazine who picked the daily show host as the most influential man of the year in the u.s.
and as he's an associate you're going to reports that saturday is putting his popularity to the test in public. when its own box gets in the way of political promises were promised during the campaign change you can believe in right it wasn't change you can believe in in eighteen months when the media war was over with fear and anger. and the minds of a population are attacked with misinformation there's such a lack of truth on the airwaves were being dumbed down by the news business who are americans left to trust according to a poll conducted by an online men's magazine comedian jon stewart is the most influential man in america after eleven years on the daily show how four million voters bumped him up to the number one spot and i would be concerned if it was they said larry the cable guy was the must trust a man who married jack so i feel like. one way of earning the trust has been confronting the mainstream media we need help from the media and they're earning us
dissecting the lies being spun by pundits taking over t.v. screens in america. are you know you don't think you're going to look please no no no you tell me you weren't on the border collies doing the learning period. no. no no. no do you think it is dangerous well i wonder what the letter would have to say about. the security in the us these days it is taking a comedian to show that the lack of trust in the media is what's causing programs ratings to crash i have privately amongst my friends and also an occasional newspapers and television show. mentioned this show as being bad you made the
right choice you are leaving this place you know where you are in the last guy out of a burning building and draw on. and you are so up and so comedian jon stewart became the most trusted man in america he calls crap like you sees it and always uses humor humor and simpler reasons to he's just a handsome man he's just a handsome trustworthy fellow but it's far from just believing he's appreciating the humor for the first time a sitting president has appeared on stewart's show just a couple of days before the midterm election democrats this year seem to be running on. please baby one more chance. in the same pool stewart won the number one spot obama didn't even make the top twenty with tens of thousands of americans if not more headed to jon stewart's rally to restore sanity this weekend the fight for truth in media and in politicians is moving almost right into the homes of the political elite and even though stewart and denies being
a man of politics there is this idea out there that comedians do not have a personal political agenda but has one i can say that we do if the comedian were to push his agenda forward the most trusted man in america would have his followers join him which should be the scary thought for all those politicians media pundits and the rest of the establishment so far failing to earn trust with their own people. are actually your. now people trust jon stewart because he questions power and that's what jeff cohen journalism professor at college thanks but he warns the comedian become a politician now i don't know that he's the most didn't show but i think one of the reasons he's so popular is he is program is imbued with small d. democratic spirit you look at people in power with skepticism you look. questioning what they're doing you have an attitude about them that's the
democratic spirit that our country was founded on that we all the laurels about the united states is this democratic spirit so when you look at the corporate mainstream media you see a lot of cozying up to so i think the reason jon stewart in there is they make fun of they make fun of. they make fun of the media elite themselves as they have for you this hour here in our tank to our. take carry up to ten so. you can see to a really unique up to the pacific. we have. to wait. for the latest and the russian military arms. now russia has a zero tolerance approach to drinking and driving but still alcohol is blamed for around two thousand deaths a year and opponents of the last think it's actually
a strict they say new breathalyzers are so effective just saying food can push motorists over the limit. operation in the braided driver is in full swing it's the latest attempt to combat russia's drink driving problem one of the worst in the world. these offices are equipped with brand new breathalyzers and all because there are tolerance more with allows no alcohol at all than to drive the system. instead of for arresting more people where rectal is seen and drop people are deterred by the new laws indeed the several dozen draws stopped by the police and this night all test authorities say that the combination of tougher legislation and more in terms of policing is having the desired effect not everybody agrees drivers' associations have been up in arms they say statistics show the drink driving has been on the wane in recent years regardless of legislation and they
claim the new laws are unworkable and discriminatory drinking a small minds of alcohol has no impact on driving licenses being confiscated from those whose ability to drive isn't impaired. it's the same question current through their city gay dude and his asking. for benefits to gay tribes a government sanctioned breathalyzer. after a cup of tea he takes the test again now he's over the legal limit. i got one of these government sanctioned breathalyzers of my birthday last year when the legislation was introduced i tried it and was surprised to discover alcohol content can be triggered not just by drinking small amounts of beer by bread spicy food in milk now i'm starting a campaign against islam because i am not a criminal with the sort of gay is still driving and hoping his corner experience is one cost him his license while the police hope that the number of drink driving
related their fall from the two thousand recorded last year whatever it takes you go over on the party must go. well take a look at some of the stories from around the world then president obama said there was a credible terrorist threat to the american after an international security incident on the path just containing potentially explosive material hidden in toner cartridges were intercepted on airplanes in the u.k. and to buy the flights were on route to chicago from yemen as part of what's thought to have been a test run for a larger terror attack both packages were dressed to u.s. jewish organizations. and twenty six people have been killed or more of and four dozen injured in a suicide attack in central iraq a man blew himself up in a crowd of cafe in the town of balad rooms seventy kilometers north of baghdad the attack was in an area mostly populated by shia kurds a common target for sunni insurgents. indonesia's most volatile volcano is erupting
again spewing ash on neighboring villages and some schools have become inaccessible and are temporarily closed it follows that tsunami that hit several islands on monday leaving almost fifty thousand people homeless the number of dead from the two disasters has reached four hundred forty three but scores are still missing. an exhibition to showcase the latest arms equipment available to military and civilian security forces has stayed in place in moscow sarah firth went along for a ride on one of the new super vehicles at the front line of the war on terror. hair. politics. the fourteenth international coal red for the maids a provision estate security say they're alive devastation is going on today at the moment we're told they only got a ping this ceremony and throughout the day they gave the same test amongst the iraqi officials just the russian forces a capable of this is a three day event that combines full connected specialized exhibitions one with the
international exhibition of police and defense technology another is the international specialized exhibition of technical systems and facilities the bota service and specialized international exhibition at the medical equipment and technologies in that area is one of the largest offenses kind in russian is a very unique event with the full from the russian government that's any exhibition in russia the seven states in the way it does the technical capabilities the base the full system and the equipment you have a demonstration by the russian a tear and then a straight question the combat operation and you can see now that the landing that also. the specialist the so-called to be going at it taking this building hit by so this was a high ranking officials this gives all the participants of the exhibition a chance to get up close and personal to some the specialized military equipment like this heavily armored vehicle. taking live they could easily carry
up to ten soldiers at a time and you can see that it really does provide a unique opportunity so the discipline is a big submission to see exactly how these vehicles work in combat situation. well an army of zombies and vampires is coming out to play this weekend in moscow but halloween is a fairly new thing year so more about the ghoulish celebration and rushing the latest edition of moscow out next hour but here's a teaser. so it's it's midnight to go by i'm finished pumpkin i'm all alone here in the fog just opposite the covenant. and it's about this time of lights but all the ghosts the spirits are meant to come out. whether some people like it or not following it but we did say in.
the water. well it's now delve into the world of business with carrying our joint. and we hear gran that russia will increase gas supplies to poland so how big is this increase well gas supplies will be increased by as much as forty percent merino but after nearly two years of talks and delays the deal has been sealed and that's very important more than that in just a moment but first one of the world's top auto parts appliance has opened its first plant in russia cannot as magnet is ramping up production here as more foreign carmakers are expanding their operations but as medina caution reports the lack of locally produced components is putting the brakes on the russian auto industry. dashboards bomb the radiator grills and other components that's what this newly built plan and the cougar region will produce and more importantly that's what the
fast recovering russian call market lacks at the moment the kaluga plant is just one of the serious of russian projects run by magna in late september the canadian company also announced the opening of three plants in simpy does that the total investment into the cougar project top seventy four million euros the plunge will manufacture components from false fagging renal and. for certain products we are using. but they're all referred to. so we still have to import. data for example from from from outside. pretty sure that this will change over time experts say this year global top production could exceed pre-crisis levels with seventeen million vehicles rolling off the assembly lines russia will contribute about one point seven million to vote total by twenty eleven for many of this as simply
a sample hand rather than build from scratch the biggest bottleneck for production in russia is the lack of social compliance plenty of manufacturing plants but the source of supply of world class quality components is pretty limited and a lot of the plants that are being set up a store importing a vast majority of components so now the big question really to consolidate the restoration of the russian car industry the growth potential of the russian call market is such that x. prize believes more foreign manufacturers will be looking to set up joint ventures with domestic phones but as the industry here expands some changes in the manufacturing process need to be arming analysts say russia needs to produce more high quality muscle. components if it's to fulfill its potential as a base for foreign comic mind in the question of business and region. russia will
increase gas supplies to poland by as much as forty percent following the new agreement after nearly two years of talks and legal delays the deal has been sealed the outline of the contract was agreed in january this year but it then faced a long process to comply with a european antitrust law deputy prime minister said the talks in warsaw also good agreement on other areas of the energy sector. in the power industry we plan to explode russian electricity to poland we've offered our parish partners to participate in constructing a ball to nuclear power plant but the shareholders and in other fields. are informed us about the privatization of some oil assets that will take place in the near future and we agreed that russian companies would be able to participate in this. russian equity markets finished higher and friday here in moscow the r.t.s. you raised earlier losses and managed to put a positive territory the markets also finish more than
a percent higher energy majors let's support the banks pare losses otherwise its parent was two percent higher because. now after climbing past the sixteen hundred level at the beginning of the week the r.t.s. couldn't hold on to those gains and in spite of the rebound on friday both. ended the week below what they started it well in national capital explains what caused the downturn. mark you started off quite well early in the week and then it came off towards the end of the week and the really big talking point of the stimulus package coming out of the u.s. can keep pump enough money into the u.s. economy to not only get the u.s. economy back on track track but to get those dollars into global assets one of which is russia is to say it's the russian companies and two sectors that are really in the public eye right now the first is the banking sector and the second is the utility sector and banks is all about the privatization this announcement that russia is going to be privatizing states and spanked and b t v as
a lot of people pretty excited and you know there's been some pretty positive changes that have taken place but from the management and in the way in which those banks are being driven they're looking much more sort of pan russian platform and people quite enthusiastic about that so the banks have done well and then the utility side there's a lot of speculation about when tariff reform will actually take place and we had some very good news this morning that finally the markets expectations have been met and you know tariff reform seems to be on track and so we've got a lot of money coming into the utility sector as well now russia central bank has left its kiwi finance a great unchanged at seven point seven five seventy five percent for the third straight month the bank will see said we can in consumer demand and uncertain prospects in the global economy post added risks for growth however alpha bank president. says there was no room to cut rates further. i would support it because
they could for very serious years of inflation. give the budgetary problems still there. for the budget station the soft i would say. also the way they report it would be a state so i guess they could be here adequately. that's the business is but you can own always log on to our website artie dot calls last business for more.
